Exactly what does this mean?
This website essentially is peddling a birth-control pill that allows you only one period every three months, which is about four periods a year. Does that sound healthy? Should we be meddling with nature so much? Should women really experiment like this with their bodies? Scariest of all, what animals have the developers of these pills experimented on to get the results they've got?
I, for one, have never wished I never had a period. I have all the usual annoying things that go with a period but I've never wished it didn't exist. Maybe I rejoice in my femininity too much, maybe I love everything about being a woman. Maybe I am resistant to change, but I honestly don't believe in meddling with things like this.
